Folias de Baco, Vinhas Velhas Tinto - 2016

Regular price £22.50
/

Folias de Baco, translates to 'the madness of Bacchus'. Tiago knew from a young age where his heart belonged. At 13 he attended an agricultural school instead of regular high school, and following university in Portugal he left for Oregon, USA. It is there that he completed a PhD in viticulture and oenology, with a particular focus on rootstocks and ungrafted vines, and the physiology of vines and the plants found in vineyards. In 2007 he returned to Portugal and took over the 20 hectares of family vineyards in the Douro. 'UIVO' is written on most of the wines - it translates to 'howl.' The inspiration is a return to nature. Since converting all of his vineyards to organic and biodynamic practices he has seen a substantial return of wildlife. Wolves used to roam his area and he is hoping to help lure them back someday.
